Document Description
There are two components of the proposed project: the Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant (IWTP), and the proposed wastewater collection line. The proposed IWTP would be located north of the existing Wastewater Treatment Plant on a 78-acre site and would be installed in a phased approach. Phase I would have a wastewater treatment capacity of 2.0 MGD. As the wastewater flows and number of industrial discharges increase, phase II of the IWTP will be constructed with a treatment capacity to 4.0 MGD. The proposed wastewater collection line includes approximately 11 ,100 linear feet (LF) of new gravity sewer pipe located mainly on public street right-of-way. This collection line would convey flows starting near the intersection of Katherine Street and Puente Del Monte Avenue. The pipeline heads south on Puente Del Monte Avenue before turning west onto Gonzales River Road. The pipeline alignment continues on Gonzales River Road and continues west onto Short Road. The proposed collection line would convey flow on Short Road before finally terminating at the new IWTP site.
